Selected by Toronto Toros round 1 #4 overall 1973 WHA Amateur Draft.

As the youngest of three hockey-playing brothers, by the time Paulin Bordeleau had reached the major junior level he was certainly receiving additional attention from pro scouts, who wanted to see if he was as good, or perhaps even better, than his siblings Christian and J.P.
Bordeleau, like his brothers, was not big physically, which was a concern to NHL scouts but had  a strong training camp and made the team roster as a 20-year-old rookie . In 1976 he was lured to the WHA with a large contract offer from the Quebec Nordiques and the opportunity to play with his brother Christian. Following the demise of the WHA after the 1978-79 season, Bordeleau decided to move to France, where he played for eight years and was a member of the 1988 French Olympic Team that competed in Calgary.


Received these black ink signed cards TTM.

Also included this black ink signed index card.

So I have autographs of all three Bordeleau brothers on cards and index cards. Maybe my next project should be to show brother combination autographs.
